So there's a great post with a lot of information here: http://fordfusionhyb...ew-forum-users/
 
That said, I know this would have helped me out about a week ago.  An acronym decoder chart:  (Hover over an acronym for the definition.)

  • AC - Air Conditioning (Just in case)
  • ACC - Adaptive Cruise Control
  • ANC - Active Noise Canceling
  • BLIS - Blind Spot Information System
  • BTU - British Thermal Unit
  • CVT - Continuously Variable Transmission

  • eCVT - Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission
  • FFH - Ford Fusion Hybrid
  • GPS - Global Positioning System (Just in case)
  • HVAC - Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning (Just in case)
  • HVB - High Voltage Battery
  • HyTi - Hybrid Titanium
  • ICE - Internal Combustion Engine

Great idea Guardian_Bob, but instead of a tooltip, wouldn't it be easier for users if you just write out what each acronym means?
On my ipad, there is no mouse to hover over an item.

I really wanted a table but the forums won't do that.  I used the acronym tag so people could copy and paste, but I can duplicate the meaning so you don't have to hover over.

Thanks, I've corrected that misspeeling multiple times.  My fingers don't do well with homonyms.

I like acronyms/initialisms as much as the next one, + appreciate the lists, above--but I'd hope that most of us are OK with striking a reasonable balance (i.e., KISS :-) . This stuff can be overdone in both directions, & an objective shouldn't be to be too "cute", let alone cryptic.
